Upper Deck 2006, #10SJP

NOTES:

When I heard that Joey Porter was Hines Ward LB coach- I was excited to see if I could add him in person. The Brahmas were very… stubborn about in person events, even though they promised meet and greets. Later in the season, the team had one in Boerne for the Wounded Warrior Project. When the whole team was announced to be attending I selected out a few cards, hoping I could get him. I was really happy to get him on these two, as he had a pretty decent line. Age seems to be catching up to him, as he has a noticeable hobble from all his injuries playing the game.

Of note, was a chance I missed. I correctly IDed his son, Joey Porter Jr who happened to be there with him. He was surprised and amused that I picked him out of the crowd, but grimaced when I suggested he’d be a great fit for the Texans.

Duncan, Curtis (4)

Proset 1993, #168

CARD: Pro Set 1993, Photo Memorabilia
ACQUIRED: In Person, GTSM 2023
FAILURE: TTM 2020, C/o Home

CAREER SNAPSHOT:

NOTES:

After Haywood signed TTM back in 2020 I flipped back out this photo to Curtis I took from the GMC Showcase back in 2013. I was surprised not to get it back TTM. After 3 years of waiting I figured I’d just get him at the GTSM showcase.

I was the first person in line for Curtis. He was happy to sign anything. I think he recognized me from the last time we met at the Houston Texans game while he was still an ambassador for the franchise. He LOVED the #80 jersey I was wearing and told me he still had the GMC shirt from the photo below.

Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
